IST Austria features a busy and varied campus life. Scientists and administrative staff get together for social and cultural activities, ranging from soccer, volleyball, billiards and skiing to board games, movie nights, dancing lessons, and yoga courses. Frisbee and slack-lining are among the more alternative sports played on campus. Lovers of culture and art meet on a regular basis for rehearsals and performances of the IST Choir, for visits to Vienna’s English Theatre and tours of the museum gugging in Klosterneuburg.

Additionally, IST Austria provides free-of-charge on-site language courses for all employees. Whereas the four-level German course for scientists takes place every week throughout the academic year, the three-level English course for administration members is held every other week.
